Men most likely to support decriminalizing prostitution

Prairie residents and younger Canadians most opposed

by

A new poll for QMI Media found that 60 per cent of Canadian men approve of decriminalizing prostitution, compared to just 38 per cent of women. The survey also found support for legal prostitution was higher among all Canadians over the age of 35, with 50 per cent support, compared to just 39 per cent support among 18-34 year-olds. Mario Canseco of Angus Reid told QMI that while the gender divide on the issue was known, but the age divide was a surprise. Support for prostitution was highest in Quebec (54 per cent) and lowest in Saskatchewan and Manitoba (23 per cent). The federal government plans to appeal the Ontario court ruling that struck down Canada’s prostitution laws.
